Grey nomads taxed on caravans
THOUSANDS more Queenslanders are set to fall victim to the Palaszczuk Government's "greedy” tax on new cars, campervans and motorhomes, says LNP Leader Deb Frecklington.
Ms Frecklington said grey nomads and Queensland families keen to enjoy the great outdoors would now be paying thousands of dollars more to live the dream.
"Today we learn yet more Queenslanders will be victims of Labor's addiction to tax,” Ms Frecklington said.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk's vehicle tax will add thousands of dollars to the cost of a campervan or motorhome under 4.5tonnes.
"Queensland retirees set to take off on their trip of a lifetime will be slugged thousands of dollars extra.
"After a life of hard work and years of saving, the Palaszczuk Government's happy to rip money right out of retirees' pockets.
"Not to mention battling families whose only hope of a beach holiday is to save up for a campervan.
"Labor is taxing people's dreams.”
Ms Frecklington said this tax had been rammed through without proper consultation or consideration of those it would hurt.
"Labor slipped this sneaky tax through,” she said.
"Industry groups like the Caravan and Trade and Industries Association were ignored, as were the thousands of Queenslanders who'll be slugged when they buy their dream vehicle.”
